Finding the Right Electronics Book

In summary, the conversation is about recommendations for books on electronics. A P Malvino, B Grob, Introductory Circuit Analysis by Boyelstad, Electronic Design by Carpenter, Electronic Devices by Floyd, and The Art of Electronics are all mentioned as good options. "The Electronics of Radio" by David B. Rutledge is also recommended for RF fundamentals. "Lessons In Electronic Circuits" is also mentioned as a free resource.

I will also second the suggestion for Introductory Circuit Analysis, Boyelstad. This is the book to have if youre new to this kind of stuff. The book has very clear explanations, lots of illustrations, examples, and applications.

Also The Art of Electronics is a good reference book.
